With trending music shifting quickly from year to year, I appreciate Spotify's My 2017 Wrapped feature, where the songs that you played the most during 2017 are collected into a playlist. Not only does this allow you to enjoy the songs you might have forgotten about, it also provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your year. When did you first discover this song? What were you doing when this song was playing? Here are a few of my favorites from My 2017 Wrapped.
